Eating our way through Flint

When I started working on today’s pictures I realized it looks like we just spend our vacation eating.  Though we both love great food and restaurants and we look forward to our favorite places here we do other things as well.

Today’s main event besides eating was a visit to the Flint Institute of the Arts.  There’s a big exhibit of French painter Marthe Orant and it was SO lovely.  I didn’t feel like going through the paperwork to be allowed to take photos — especially since FIA often attaches a rider that says you can’t publish them anywhere.  You can see a description of the exhibit here.

Lunch before the Art Institute was at Fandangles in Flushing.  Since I put up some shots from there last year I tried to take a couple of angles I’ve not had.  Of course the display of local artists’ work changes, so the back drop varies.  Forgot to take shots of yummy lunch…

For dinner we headed out to Whitey’s in Davison.  I love the lobster bisque and the appetizer size of coconut shrimp — after the big lunch something lighter sounded good.

Tomorrow is Mom’s 89th birthday.  Lunch with friends at Gandy Dancer and shopping at Kerrytown–all in Ann Arbor.  Evening unknown.
